Spa Birthday Invites

Hi everyone, today I am a guest designer on Shesasassylady.  My daughter's birthday is in a few weeks and she wants to have a slumber/spa/birthday party for her celebration.  She doesn't want much does she?  Anyway I saw these invites in the front of the cartridge handbook for the Imagine cartridge Best Friend's a couple of month's ago and wanted to make them for her party.  I started with the Best Friend's cart and selected the girl with the robe and all the layers and cut her at 4.5 inches.

I needed to make six invites so I selected project quantity of 6 on the Imagine screen and it tells you how many times you need to load the mat for that quantity.

I then printed 2 of the pattern papers that are included with this cart.  I cut a piece of black cardstock 4"x9.5", I cut the striped paper 3.75"x9.25", and the green paper 3.5"x9".  The Girl and her layers are 4.5" which includes the cat in the robe.

I cut the Slumber Party sign at 2", because I made my actual invite in Word with that amount of space between you're invited and the details.

Here are all the pieced to the invite.

Here is the invite assembled.

I thought I would make the soda bottle accessories like is shown in the front of the Cartridge handbook, and my daughter is giving away gift bags to all the attendees and I thought the premade scrapbook page that comes in the cart that you can print would be cute on the front of the bags.  I could add pics of each guest for a keepsake.

Until next time, Beth.
